Moving forward through Ups and Downs : A Narrative Study on Teaching Practice and Differentiated Instruction in a High School Athletic Class
high school athletic class
This study was implemented in a first-year athletic class in Shan-yang (pseudonym) High school from fall semester in 2017 to spring semester in 2018. Based on Narrative Study, interviews, classroom observation, and worksheets were conducted to explore what’s the difference between students’ learning experiences and their career development under certain circumstances: they had to deal with academic subjects and professional training and competition at the same time. The study also provides an in-depth understanding of how these differences and experiences impact the interaction between athletic class students and subject teachers during teaching practice. In addition, the embedded meanings and value judgments of the study are displayed to further perceive the difficulties and limits during the implementation of curriculum and teaching in a high school athletic class. At the end of the thesis, conclusion and suggestions are discussed for future athletic class curriculum mapping of high-school curriculum guidelines. The result shows that because of the students’ different identity, they have to choose between different options: joining regular class or athletic class, spending more time on academic subjects or on professional training; however, this circumstance easily has a bad impact on them. For not understanding the circumstance, the teachers usually find it hard to realize adaptive instruction, and make it difficult to manage the class. The existence of the athletic class becomes the gap between the teachers and the students, making both the learning environment for students and the teaching practice for teachers much tougher. Therefore, considering the different timetable the students have at school, suitable materials and corresponding evaluation standards for athletic classes in every subject are recommended, which can trigger students’ learning motivation to ensure they are not loners at the campus. Once the meaning and the value of learning are set, students’ pursuit for higher education can be realized. Besides, students in athletic class will make the best choice to them and fight for themselves.
